Mike and Sonia’s wedding at Hilton Garden Inn and Doko Meadows left HEP feeling accomplished. When you put your trust in God it works for His good indeed. Mike and Sonia’s wedding day started at the Hilton Garden Inn Columbia Northeast on 8910 Farrow Rd. They could not have selected a better place to get ready before their ceremony. Doko Meadows in Blythewood SC is minutes away from the Hilton Garden Inn Columbia Northeast. I encourage all my couples to consider out of town guest when selecting a hotel to get ready in before getting married. It also allows for easy adjustments during the day to ensure we can proper photograph your wedding day!
When Human Eye Photography met Mike at the hotel he was beyond ready to marry his stunning bride. Mike’s Best Man Joe help me get him ready. It was hard trying not to have such a good time with this groom with all the hilarious commentary we shared. It’s a good thing we were no where near the ladies during this time. After all the laughs we got down to some serious business with some shots of him before he walked down the isle. You can find more shots on my Facebook page and my Instagram page as well.
When I got to Sonia’s room I meet the queen herself celebrity make up artist Kimberly Asia Hall. Kimberly Asia Hall is a professional makeup artist and licensed cosmetologist based in the Carolina’s. Asia is pretty humble. While I know of some of her work you can read her Styleseat to find out that she has been featured on Vh1, Disney Channel, BET and in numerous magazines world wide.
Sonia had a team of professionals to include the loving bridesmaids to help her get prepared. I was touched by how tight nit everyone was. I was able to capture some tender moments while everyone was preparing to witness the nuptials at Doko Meadows. When selecting bridesmaids I always recommend having your “forevers.”
Even Mike and Sonia’s Wedding ceremony was entertaining. Even though it was extremely hot Mike was able to beat the heat with a few laughs during the exchanging of the rings ceremony at Doko Meadows. The fun didn’t stop there. The bridal party got in on the fun too. The spirits were so high Sonia even had to laugh at herself during the bouquet toss. See for your self!
